These chocolate hazelnut truffles are absolutely delicious, and remind me of “Ferrero Rocher” chocolates.  This recipe started with a desire for a festive and tasty treat.  I found what I could for inspiration in my cupboards, and threw together what now happens to be one of my favorite go-to desserts.  Enjoy the recipe and please post your feedback in the comments section below!

Ingredients
  1. ¼ cup dark chocolate (dairy-free)
  2. ¾ cup hazelnuts
  3. ¼ cup full-fat coconut milk
  4. ¼ cup shredded coconut
  5. 2 tbsp cocoa nibs
  6. 1 tbsp honey
  7. 1 tbsp additional coconut (optional)
  8. Sprinkle of cinnamon and cardamom (optional)
Instructions
  1. Roast hazelnuts in the oven at 350°F until lightly toasted (approximately 8 minutes).
  2. While hazelnuts are toasting, melt the chocolate over very low heat in a small pot on the stove, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Add the coconut milk and stir to mix well.
  3. Place hazelnuts in a food processor once toasted. Add the other ingredients, and pulse the food processor until ingredients are finely chopped but not smooth. If you do not have a food processor, the hazlenuts would need to be crushed or very finely chopped, and the rest of the ingredients mixed by hand.
  4. Form the mixture into small balls using a rounded tablespoon and place on a plate or baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with additional coconut, cinnamon and/or ground cardamom. You can combine all three or select your favorite…anything goes!
